    Would you consider the audio edition of The Fifth Discipline to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I really enjoyed listening rather then reading it as I felt I was more apart of the conversation


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fifth Discipline?

    beer game - and how I could relate to it.


    What does Peter M. Senge bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    his passion and the way he provides the examples is more capturing.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved in the beer game and continued all the way through.


    Any additional comments?

    I find it very difficult to read a book, my mind seems to read the page over and over again, like I skim over the words not taking them in. Thus I don't read any books.

    This was a test for me and i'm hooked I actually loved every moment, and will not listen to a book a week.

    Thank you.

    Interstellar, from acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan, takes us on a fantastic voyage far beyond our solar system. Yet in The Science of Interstellar, Kip Thorne, the physicist who assisted Nolan on the scientific aspects of Interstellar, shows us that the movie's jaw-dropping events and stunning, never-before-attempted visuals are grounded in real science. Thorne shares his experiences working as the science adviser on the film and then moves on to the science itself.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book was extremely hard to put down.

    Note: you have to request the PFD from a 3rd party. However, that was super easy as they provide that in the first 5 mins.

    One hundred thousand years ago, at least six human species inhabited the Earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism?

    The China Study offers conclusive evidence that a change of diet can dramatically reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The book is based on the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted, a 20-year joint project between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine. The study surveyed the eating habits of 6,500 adults from all over China and Taiwan and found a direct correlation between diet and disease.

  • Think and Grow Rich

    Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie - and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original.

    Dave says: "It's a must."
    "Excellent examples of how to master oneself"

    Story
    Where does Think and Grow Rich rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent examples of how to master oneself which then leads to enriching your life in all aspects ie money, health, well being, family, being happy, and I guess why we are here and who is in control.

    I really liked this audio-book, as it high lights that you are in control of your mind and your action which leads to your environment.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Napoleon Hill? Why or why not?

    Yes I would try another book by Napoleon Hill, as I did enjoy this one.


    Which character – as performed by Erik Synnestvedt – was your favorite?

    Ford - As his schooling was so little but yet he is such a success.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book got me interested and reflecting on myself and how I allow others to make me feel. I will now actively work on this to make me a better person


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent book for all people of any age.

    Should be mandatory for all high schools, as it provides examples of what one needs to do if they want to succeed and if they don't get that from home (which 80% of people do not) then at least they can utilise the examples in the book.
